The demand for courier, express, and parcels is expected to grow owing to growth of e-commerce

  • Several courier pickup and delivery services in Australia came up during the review period (2016-2021). In 2016, 15,788 businesses were operating in the CEP market. This number increased to 24,440 businesses in the market in 2020, then to 24,731 businesses in 2021. In 2022, the number of businesses operating in the Australian courier market was about 29,786. In 2023, Australia Post, worked cooperatively with its workforce and the Communication Workers Union to trial a new model for mail delivery which resulted in expansion of delivery points by more than 10% per round, and enabled postal workers to carry up to 20% more parcels.
  • E-commerce is a major driver for domestic and international CEP segment demand. The e-commerce market increased by 35.09% YoY in 2020 and reached about USD 28 billion due to increased demand owing to social distancing norms and work-from-home circumstances due to the global pandemic spread. The main category driving the parcel volumes was the fashion segment, and the electronics segment. The gross value added (GVA) by Australia's transport, postal, and warehousing industry as of December 2021 was around USD 61.38 billion. Also, in 2020, of the total cross-border online purchases made in Australia, 41% were purchased from China and 24% from the United States.
  • In 2022, post offices in Australia conducted 192 million transactions. Also, Australia Post, the national postal service, delivered 526 million parcels in the 2022 financial year. This has played a major role in the increased contribution from the domestic and international CEP segment during the historic period reaching up to 2022 largely due to increasing e-commerce. Also, e-commerce, a major driver, is projected to touch USD 54.68 billion by 2027 and is expected to fuel CEP market growth.

Australia Courier, Express, and Parcel (CEP) Market Trends

Australia invested USD 120 billion in infrastructure projects, focusing on nation-building and land transport projects

  • The Australian market encompassing transport, postal, and warehousing displayed growth across key metrics during the fiscal year 2021-22. Earnings within the transport industry division and its income value added (IVA) surged by 14.4% (amounting to USD 4.7 billion) and 15.0% (USD 10.8 billion), respectively. With a workforce of 122,810 individuals recorded by the end of June 2021, the transport support services subdivision accounted for 19.2% of the overall employment within the division, establishing itself as the second-largest employing subcategory after road transport.
  • In 2022, the declines in division earnings were predominantly driven by a 7.6% decline in the transport support services sub-division, including airport activity. Around 62.7% decline in sales and service income for air and space transport reflected a significant decline in air travel due to COVID-19. Road freight transport is the largest employing sub-sector in the transport and logistics sector, followed by postal and courier pickup and delivery services and road passenger transport, with water transport support services employing the least number of people.
  • The Australian Government remains resolutely dedicated to a robust 10-year infrastructure pipeline valued at USD 120 billion, focusing on delivering land transport projects that hold national significance and contribute to shaping the nation's future. The 2023-24 budget represents a stride forward in establishing an infrastructure investment pipeline integral to nation-building endeavors. This initiative forms the bedrock for constructing a sustainable and credible lineup of projects, selected based on diverse economic and societal goals, encompassing regional connectivity, quality of life enhancement, and safety enhancement.

Tightening global oil markets and the weakening Australian dollar led to an increase in fuel prices in Australia

  • During 2021-2022, diesel prices rose by 40.1%, reaching 176 cents per liter (USD 1.76). Diesel prices tend to follow trends in the global price of crude oil, with oil prices projected to rise sharply in the current year. With global oil consumption recovering following the COVID-19 pandemic, supply concerns led oil prices to rise again due to the Russia-Ukraine War during 2022-23, thus increasing retail diesel prices. The federal government implemented a temporary 50% reduction in the fuel excise in March 2022 to help offset rising costs, which ended in September with the fuel excise returning to its full rate, causing motorists to pay more at the pump.
  • Petrol prices in Australia's major cities climbed to an average of USD 1.18 per liter in October 2021, the highest since 2014, when adjusted for inflation. While prices plummeted to record lows during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the cost of fuel in Australia has been rising steadily since November 2020.
  • According to the Australian Institute of Petroleum, the average retail price for petrol in Australia hit 196.5 cents (USD 1.96) in August 2023. Since the federal government's halving of the fuel excise ended last September, the national average weekly petrol price has been hovering around 175 to 180 cents a liter (USD 1.75-1.8). The average weekly petrol price in the capital cities sits at 197.5 cents a liter (USD 1.97), with Sydney, Adelaide, and Hobart recording an average weekly price of more than USD 2 a liter, while Brisbane had the lowest average price of 188.2 cents a liter (USD 1.882). Also, the average national diesel price hit a nearly eight-month high of 206.9 cents a liter (USD 2.06). The tightening global oil market and the weakening Australian dollar are responsible for rising petrol prices.

Keyword Definition
Axle Load The axle load refers to the total load (weight) bearing on the roadway through wheels connected to a given axle. Across the globe, there are systems in place to ensure axle load monitoring, wherein surpassing the defined limits set by the concerned regulatory authority can lead to penalty/fine. For transportation of goods via road this can be an important determinant of costs as knowledge about the axle load limits can be used to (i) load the vehicle optimally for maximizing profits (ii) avoid exceeding the same and hence the probable fines associated (iii) avoid wear and tear of the vehicle (iv) avoid damage to pavement resulting in noticeable public maintenance and repair costs (v) achieve better turnaround time.
Back Haul Backhaul is the return movement of a transport vehicle from its original destination to its original point of departure, and can include full, partial, or empty truck loads (all or part of the way) depending on the visibility of the local freight ecosystem. In this regard, transportation of empty containers to the point of origin, known as deadheading is also a significant factor, considering the supply/container shortages across the geographies, resulting in cost escalation and under optimized profit potential attainment. Generally, the carriers offer discounts on the backhaul, to secure freight for the trip.
Bill of Lading (BOL) A bill of lading is a legal contract document issued by a carrier to a shipper to acknowledge reception of their cargo, and is evidence for the contract of carriage between the two parties. Broadly it details the (i) type, quantity, and other specifications of the goods being carried (ii) destination, and terms & conditions of the shipment (iii) carrier and drivers with all the necessary information to process the shipment, which can be used for insurance and customs clearance purposes (iv) assurance that the consignment is damage-free and ready to be shipped to the consignee. In this regard, a house bill of lading (HBL) is a document issued by a freight forwarder or a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) to acknowledge receipt of items for shipment (to a shipper). If shipments from several shippers are involved a master bill of lading (MBL) might be involved which is a consolidated version of the same for all the shipments being taken care of by the carrier (to a common destination) and might be issued by the carrier to the freight forwarder or the shipper (depending on who books the transport).
Bunkering Bunkering is the process of supplying fuel to power the propulsion system of a ship. It includes the logistics of loading and distributing the fuel among available shipboard tanks. In this regard, (i) Bunker fuel is technically any type of fuel oil used aboard ships. It gets its name from the containers on ships and in ports that it is stored in; in the days of steam they were coal bunkers but now they are bunker-fuel tanks, (ii) Bunker refers to the spaces (Tank) on board a vessel to store fuel, (iii) Bunker trader refers to a person dealing in trade of bunker (fuel), (iv) Bunker call is made when a cargo ship anchors or berths in a port to take on bunker oil or supplies, (v) Bunkering service is the supply of a requested quality and quantity of bunkers to a ship. Bunkering is signficant from point of view of freight rates applicable to the shipper as Bunker Contribution (BUC)/ Fuel Adjustment Factor (FAF)/ Bunker Adjustment Factor (BAF) are applied by shipping lines to offset the effect of fluctuations in the cost of bunkers.
Cabotage Transport by a vehicle registered in a country, performed on the national territory of another country. Cabotage law may restrict domestic cargo traffic to be carried in its own nationally registered, and sometimes built and crewed vehicles, though regulations vary across industries/commodity groups/countries and sometimes specify maximum allowable percentage of cabotage that can be serviced by foreign registered fleet.
C-commerce Collaborative commerce (also known as C-commerce), (i) describes electronically enabled business interactions among an enterprise’s internal personnel, business partners and customers throughout a trading community (industry, industry segment, supply chain or supply chain segment); (ii) is the optimization of supply and distribution channels to capitalize on the global economy by using new technology efficiently. Advantages of C-commerce, to detail few include (i) maximization of organization's efficiency and profitability (ii) technology integration with physical channels to allow companies to work together (iii) increased information exchange such as inventory and product specifications, using the web as an intermediary (iv) increased competitiveness by reaching a broader audience. Examples of C-commerce, also known as peer-to-peer commerce, include (i) companies that allow consumers to rent things from each other, or marketplaces, such as Meta (formerly Facebook) Marketplace, that allow the sale of used goods; (ii) DoorDash teamed up with many national brands, such as McDonald’s and Chipotle, to offer fast food delivery, building their business model on c-commerce. They have since expanded their delivery service from restaurants to retailers and even offer 'fleets' of drivers to businesses.

Example, DHL Group, FedEx, United Parcel Service of America, Inc., USPS, International Distributions Services, J&T Express, SF Express among several others
Cross docking Cross docking is a practice in logistics management that includes unloading incoming delivery vehicles and loading the materials directly into outbound delivery vehicles, omitting traditional warehouse logistical practices and saving time and money. It requires close synchronization of both inbound and outbound movements. It is highly significant in reduction of costs pertaining to warehousing & storage (and the associated Value Added Services).
Cross Trade International transport between two different countries performed by a vehicle registered in a third country. A third country is a country other than the country of loading/embarkation and the country of unloading/disembarkation. Cross Trade law may restrict international cargo traffic to be carried by respective country's registered vehicles, and sometimes built and crewed vehicles, though regulations vary across industries/commodity groups/countries and sometimes specify maximum allowable percentage of cross trade that can be serviced by foreign registered fleet.
Customs Clearance The process of declaring and clearing cargoes through customs. It includes the procedures involved in getting cargo released by Customs through designated formalities such as presenting import license/permit, payment of import duties and other required documentations by the nature of the cargo.

Once the package reaches the next warehouse or the courier’s hub, it is then sorted and transported further until it reaches the customer’s doorstep. Example, if one chooses UPS as a courier, first-mile delivery will be the product being delivered from manufacturer's/retailer's warehouse to the UPS’s warehouse/ fulfilment centre.

Milkrun A Milk Run is a delivery method used to transport mixed loads from various suppliers to one customer, using lean management principles applied to logistics. Instead of each supplier sending a truck every week to meet the needs of one customer, one truck (or vehicle) visits the suppliers to pick up the loads for that customer. This method of transport got its name from the dairy industry practice, where one tanker used to collect milk from several dairy farms for delivery to a milk processing company. A milk run can be a more efficient way to handle logistics but require proper planning. If the route involves products from different companies, there is need for an agreement about cost-sharing and other aspects of the cooperative delivery arrangement. Once the group settles these issues, this delivery method can save time and money for everyone by pooling operation costs and resources.

Apart from costing some of the other advantages include (i) flexibility to choose suppliers from a wider range of origin countries without worrying about the logistics to final destination from each origin, (ii) ability to pick the most suitable suppliers from many different countries for one's business operations. The increase in one's sourcing options by MCC provides the kind of flexibility needed in competitive global markets.

The companies providing Q-Commerce services might have vertically intergrated model or might be using third party delivery platforms (outsourced logistics). It has advantages like (i) competitve USP, (ii) potential to earn greater profit margins, (iii) better customer experience, (iv) guaranteed availability of products, (v) traceability, and (vi) scaleability.
